Stocks to Buy: Nykaa, SBI Life among top bets; here’s why


The Nifty has largely traded within a range, showing a predominantly bullish sentiment. Over the past two to three days, a ‘buy on dips’ approach has been loved by the street since the Nifty crossed the crucial 19,500 mark. The trend is expected to stay positive as the Nifty consistently concludes trading sessions above the critical moving averages. Support levels are situated at 19,630/19,500 on the lower end, while resistance is placed at 19,850/ 20,000 on the higher end.

Bank Nifty


In response to the RBI’s stricter consumer lending regulations, the Bank Nifty index opened lower and continued to trade below the 44,000 level. The index’s immediate support lies at the 43,300-43,250 zone, representing a critical defense for bullish traders. If this support holds, it could trigger a potential rebound towards the 44,000 mark. However, if this support breaks, selling pressure could escalate, pushing the index further down to the 42,700 level.
